October 28, 2011

Oct. 28 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama will host Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mexico’s President Felipe Calderon for a North American Leaders’ Summit in Honolulu on Nov. 13, the White House said.

The three leaders last held such a summit in August 2009. The Honolulu meeting will follow the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit of 21 Pacific Rim countries that is being held the same weekend in Hawaii.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said in a statement that the U.S.-Canada-Mexico leaders summit will focus on “competitiveness, citizen security, energy and climate change, and North America’s role in the Americas as well as in global economic, political, and security issues.”
